This week I caught my across the street neighbor at an act of random kindness when I noticed him snow blowing and then shoveling out the fire hydrant between our houses on Monday. I'm not sure if in the other 14 years we've lived here that it's ever been shoveled out (it has a tall yellow stick to mark its presence...), but Dave is from the city and he has a different way of looking at things than us country folk.
I'm sorry to say his effort, though noble, didn't last long. We've gotten a ton of snow since and the snowplow has buried it once again.
For my part this week, I baked cookies and gave most of them away (to Ben, Sergio, and Nate) but made sure to keep enough to keep James and Hannah well supplied. And, fancy this, I shared my cookie recipe with a bloggy
/Facebook friend in Australia and she cooked up her own batch of Molasses Cookies. (These are Erin's cookies.) How cool is that?
